Happy Birthday - (CTD398)

Hello there!  It's my turn to host over at the Color Throwdown Challenge this week and I've chosen some fun summertime colors for us to create with.  I hope you'll join in and play along.
For my card I used the My Favorite Things stamp set, You're the Sweetest along with the MFT One Way Chevron stencil for my background.  I started out with a white card base, then added a piece of raspberry fizz cardstock that I stenciled using the One Way Chevron stencil.  Then I die cut and stamped my ice cream cones using limeade ice, raspberry fizz, daffodil delight and more mustard inks.  I adhered my ice cream cones to a square of white cardstock, popping up the ice cream on the center cone.  After that I added my happy birthday banner and stamped the second half of my sentiment.  I added some Glossy Accents to the cherry on the center ice cream for some dimension.
For more inspiration, check out the design teams' blog links below OR you can go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on how to play along and you can see all the sample entries in one location.

Fabulous, summery card - love how the sentiment ties in with your sweet ice cream "topping"
